How Useful Are Blogs?

Blogs are sweeping the internet like a bush fire. They're everywhere.

Everyone is jumping on the idea these days.

But, why do we do it? A lot of people do blog for fun.

They just use it for a journal maybe to share among friends, Some for entertainment, Experiments and more.


Some might have a small community with their website and it's a great way to provide fresh information, news and ideas.

You can have a Blog directly on your website or take advantage of Wordpress.com Blogger.com's free Blog Service.

It still compliments the site, there are a lot of bells and whistles and it's very user friendly.

A large number of people are told that blogs are great for the search engines! And they are.





 Good contents can quickly get you to the top of the SERPS (Search Engine Results Pages).

I saw this post from a forum interaction regarding Blogs being listed in search engines.

They were debating if Blogs were treated any different just for being a Blog.

 Here is one of the responses I think might be useful:

It may take some time (to find your way into the search engines).

And note that a Blog probably isn't treated any different from a regular website.

It is still very important to have good Inbound Links, keywords etc from relevant or related websites and blogs.

And regarding if blogs are treated any different than regular websites:

This is probably one of those questions that Google and other search engines knows.....

I don't think they are treated any different. You just have to treat them like you're optimizing a website.

There is one thing about Blogging that you really need to know. It takes a lot of commitment.

 You have to decide if you're going to blog once per day, once per week, or every so often.

For the sake of those reading your Blog...

I compare it to this brief story.

A guy worked as a bartender for almost 10 years while searching for opportunity.

A tavern he worked for, quite a few years had a good philosophy that can be applied to Blogs...

Then most taverns must close by law at 2:00Am during the week or 2:30Am on the weekends.

Now if business is slow or you have no one in your restaurant or bar at 12:01Am, should you close?

The answer is no.

 If you have someone that same evening you close early travel 20 miles to go to your establishment and it's closed, the next time that person wants to go to a tavern at that time of day will go somewhere else... and this time he might bringing 10 of his friends if he previously enjoyed your Services !

You should stick to your hours no matter what... you could potentially lose business.

Build a reputation for being there when people need you.

Same things goes for Blogs. If you blog everyday, don't miss a day.

People start to depend on it or expect your Blogging.

If they stop by and you haven't entered a Blog in a few days, they might not come back...

I'm working on this myself. I just missed a few days. It is my intention to Blog almost everyday.

When I don't, I try to make up for it with a couple postings in one day.

Sometimes what we want to do and what we can do are two different things.

I may be busy with my business and other activities, so sometimes it's hard to do... it shouldn't be that hard though... even a 2 minutes shout out or tweak is better than nothing...  work on it.

Take Care!

Have a Productive Day!
